Today is schedule day in MLS!

Brad Penner-USA TODAY Sports

The long way is finally over as today will be the day that we finally know when and where FC Dallas plays their 34 games in 2015. We'll dive into that and more but first lets get into your morning links.

Some good and some not-so-good for the youngings in South America.

Seattle gets their man in Lagerway | MLSSoccer.com

I wonder what this means for the whole 'fans vote on the GM' thing in Seattle. Seems like they had no say in this but I'm sure most of them will be fine about it.

Is Espinoza the cure to SKC's woes? | The Blue Testament

In a short answer, he should be. But sometimes moves like this take a little more time than one might expect to pan out. So we'll certainly see. I do like seeing him come back though.

Robin Fraser set to join TFC coaching staff | Waking The Red

I wouldn't be shocked at all if Fraser eventually becomes the next head coach in Toronto. It just seems like they could go that direction in a hurry if things go a bit...well if things go about the way they normally do there in Toronto this season.

Petke fired by RBNY? | Metro.us

This one broke rather late last night but it states that New York has fired Mike Petke. If this report is true, the club is back to their old ways of doing things the wrong way for sure. Petke is really their most successful coach in the club's history, which is saying something.

Orlando fuzzy on number one draft pick | The Mane Land

Picking at the top for any expansion team can be tough. Some have done okay, others have completely failed.

Palidini charged with multiple accounts of domestic violence | Massive Report

For starters, this guy is out for a year with a broken leg. But no matter what, it is an ugly thing to read about.

NYCFC close to landing Diskerud | Goal.com

A lot of MLS clubs probably wanted Mix Diskerud but didn't want to put up with the headache of getting him (just ask Portland and Columbus about it). Either way, good to see him in MLS.

So there you have it, I may add more in later but what do you make of the news coming out of the Big Apple? If you are Orlando, who do you take? Lets discuss that and anything else on your minds.
